      Sadly, it's just broken, even past the scandal...

      It bums me out so much to write this, but this game is just not good. There has been a huge uproar about loot boxes and micro-transactions, and I'd say rightfully so, but even past that there are so many buggy and broken things in this game. The first Battlefront was a solid game that was fun but flawed, and was a great springboard for EA to fix the errors, add on cool new stuff and refine gameplay. This feels like a step backward in almost every single way sadly. The multiplayer system is skewed regardless of pay to win or not in favor of anyone who either A: has excess time to devote obscene hours to playing or B: Had the early release to devote time and level up or C: As just naturally better at this game. While you'd certainly expect these players to have higher numbers and be somewhat dominant... The system in place makes these players keep getting better and stronger exponentially faster than the majority of players, and they are given the tools and access to super characters every match to just absolutely ransack everyone else and keep those other players from advancing at an enjoyable rate. You see the drastic disparity every match in the stats. Outside of that, the Hero system is a HUGE step back, most of them play like tanks with miserable play control. The game is just generally buggy and glitchy. It's beyond slow to load and find matches, the downtime feels like it's almost as much as the up time playing. The graphics, while 99% of the time are beautiful, do have moments where you have to do a double take when you see an effect so bad it looks like something from the early 2000's. The matches themselves and level designs aren't as fun, and you spawn frustratingly far from the action every time. Lastly the campaign... Part of me loved parts of it, but generally it was a huge letdown. The story had interesting moments but not a lot of clarity and a huge cliffhanger. The hero levels were just awful, particularly the Luke level from gameplay to design. And then just the general gameplay. It was uninspired, boring, repetitive and enemies were unflinching laser blast sponges unless you land a headshot. Just a huge bummer for something I was so looking forward to. I'd love to trade it in for something else right now, but will have to wait till mid December for the free DLC that resolves the cliffhanger since I've invested this much time into it so far. As much as I'd really love to, I just couldn't recommend this to anyone as it stands, just way to flawed.

      Beautiful Disaster

      This game has a pay to win business model, micro transactions have been removed but will return. When they do return hopefully the loot crates will only contain skins and irrelevant stuff that doesn’t contribute to pay to win. However, due to that business model being setup in the first place, the game is extremely unbalanced for multiplayer until you grind up your weapons, attachments, abilities, and so on to compete with players that spend all day playing the game. Casual gamers, this is for you, multiplayer will want you to throw the controller. The loot crates give you weapons and upgrades to your abilities that you must grind for to even get a dozen kills in multiplayer. One guy from a 40 player battle will win all 5 awards just because he has all the upgrades unlocked. Also, multiplayer load times take forever, respawn points put people behind you or right next to your team, and if you try to fly something be aware that someone with all the unlocks will likely shoot you out of the sky when you spawn in. Try to find what rank you are, it seems to be located in one place, the career section. It’s important to know the status of your gaming experience and when you can upgrade stuff, but it’s not available for you to see all the time. You look and look when it could just as easily been put up in the right hand corner. Additionally, the game has a campaign mode, but the campaign can be finished in roughly 3 hours. The campaign is very disappointing and feels mashed together. Some parts really feel good and exciting, but I think for it being so short it feels very rushed and has no depth of character. Let’s just say stuff changes quickly and next thing you know you’re like what just happened. Once you start getting the hang of it, then it’s over and it’s terrible how they put it all together. Super insane graphics and design. That is not the problem. Sound is amazing too! The game is beautiful and the flying battles are amazing even with the disadvantages and the unbalancing in multiplayer modes. If you do buy the game, just fork over the extra $20 for the deluxe, why? Oh, I forgot to mention the deluxe has pay to win stuff that would take you forever to grind for, so you might as well start off with something. Happy Holidays.

      Do not listen to people

      If something I have learned in this life is that people complain about anything... One or two popular persons agree on an opinion that the XYZ game sucks and everybody follows blindly to do and say the same thing. People are moved by trends... like if they are some sort of animals acting by instinct. Use your reasoning. The game contains double of the content you found on the first one; one of the best graphics and gameplay we have seen in current generation consoles, all future content, characters, maps, etc. will be free, and yet people complain and say the game is terrible because the grind in the game to get a stupid gun is to much, and you need to pay for it if you wanted earlier.... That is just ridiculous! Same thing happened last year with COD IW. One of the most underrated video games in history. The game was hated with the reveal trailer that did not even show any gameplay. The best COD campaign in COD history with a great flow, not a single load screen, great acting, the best graphics from all COD, best movements and actions.... How can you say a game is terrible because jet-packs, and running through walls in Mars is not what you want..... again, acting like animals. Two or three popular people agreed on the opinion of boots on the ground and quickly a trend was created; hated without reason. Now COD WWII is having more online problems than with any other COD game, with content copied from other games, lots of load screen between missions, and content that looks like from a game of 2010 and I have not seen a sane reaction to that. Again... trends.... like animals.. "this is popular... lets jump to the current". Now reviewers like GameSpot, IGN, and other popular Youtube reviewers are acting like politicians... saying only what people want to hear. When the COD IW thing happened, a lot of youtube reviewers that gave a good score to the game removed their videos to prevent the stupid hate from people. That is something people do not talk about... This is now happening with almost all popular franchises. I bet that no matter how good God of War, The last of us 2, and many other AAA upcoming games will be, the same thing will happen... people will ignore all the goods things about the game, recline over a little flaw and overreact about it. THIS IS THE NEW TREND!!!!

      My review is only for the single-player campaign so please bear that in mind. The campaign is definitely better than the first game and is surprisingly lengthy at about 8-10 hours, depending on how fast you want to complete the game but the graphical beauty will be missed. I played the game on an XBOX One X on a 1080p TV and can imagine how awesome it would look on a 4K TV. Sometimes there is no time to take in the sights due to the frantic shootouts in space but it is still wonderful to see the fighters, ships and asteroids which need to be avoided so as to not crash into them. The planets look authentic and makes you think you're in a Star Wars movie. There aren't many items to locate say as the Far Cry series but upgrades to weapons are made by finding crates or opening them after completing missions and serves the purpose. They can also be purchased with real money but the game is enjoyable enough as is without having to spend more. There are other modes which I haven't tried yet such as an Arcade mode where you fight off the enemy on different planets and also a Starfighter assault mode which is similar. The multiplayer is where the game's strength lies and there is a wide choice of characters to choose from. I wouldn't know how good the servers are not having played in multiplayer. I wasn't going to get the game at first but Best Buy had a special deal so I took a chance and am glad that I did. It's not the deepest game like Fallout 4 but does provide the fun of being in a Star Wars setting. It's mostly based on use of the right weapon at the right time and the accuracy of your shooting. Your flying skills will also be tested and is exciting to be in space battles. If you have EA Access on your XBOX, you can download a trial version to preview the game which starts at the beginning of the campaign. It costs $4.99 for a month if you just want to check out a few games at first or get a year's subscription for about $30 which gives access to a lot of great games for the money.

      Star Wars Battlefront II has had quite a bit of bad press recently and most of it is deserved, but I will say that this new installment in the Battlefront series has seen some significant improvements over the last game and in my opinion this is a better game than its predecessor. The biggest improvements come in the combat side of the game. The combat has a lot more variety this time around and everything just feels more fluid. In fact the gameplay on the whole feels more fluid and responsive throughout and the variation in each mode is fantastic and this definitely keeps you coming back for more time and time again. Playing online is without a doubt the best way to enjoy this game and thankfully everything in multiplayer works and holds up really well. I will say though that the progression when playing online feels extremely limited and you only feel that you really progress if you pay for it. I was also disappointed with how long it takes to unlock the most iconic characters in the game, and the amount of grinding needed can be very frustrating.

      A fun game, but not without it's issues

      I'm not getting into the look crate issue that created such a controversy before this game was even released. EA backed off of them (if only temporarily) and you'll have to decide whether you'll pay extra money to buy those crates or not if they ever do return. I want to address the game for what it is. First things first, it's absolutely gorgeous. Easily one of the most graphically impressive games I've ever seen. It's an overall fun first-person shooter set in the Star Wars universe. The single playing campaign is just OK. I feel it moves too fast and there are plot points that feel like they weren't thought through very well. It also moves really fast. And I'm not talking about it only lasting about 4-5 hours. I mean the story jumps from one scene to another where several years have passed and never really explains what's happened or changed in the world during that time. OK try, but still leaves much to be desired. Where this game really shines is in the multiplayer (loot crates aside). The maps feel authentic to the franchise and the game modes are fun. I never got the feeling that the gameplay feels repetitive even though you're doing many of the same actions over and over. Galactic Assault is also A LOT of fun. My one gripe with the multiplayer is that it can feel like a grind to unlock all of the characters.

      I'm a huge Star Wars fan and big supporter of DICE. The first Battlefront was short and kind of limited but was a fun game. Battlefront 2 is a big letdown for me. Controls are cumbersome, no online co-op for arcade or training (Really?) and the paywalls. The microtransactions have been a topic of debate lately, so much that they're not doing them (until a later date). Piloting vehicles was alot of fun in the first Battlefront. Now I need to have credits to unlock vehicles. I guess after playing for a long time I'll eventually accumulate enough credits but at that point will have moved onto another game? Give this game a rental to see if it's for you. As much as I want to love this game (I'll keep giving a chance) there's too many other games worthy of my time out right now.

      I know. I know. This game got a bad rap when it 1st released. With all of the loot box controversy. But in the end, that was ironed down to what should've been a solid game-play experience. Well, I can't speak for PS4 or PC versions, but the Xbox One version is so buggy, you'd be lucky to get it to load up the 1st time after powering on. Once you are able to play, however, it's not a bad game at all. I came for the story, so I Look forward to completing that before I move on to online multiplayer. Wish me luck. Still, I got it on sale and I'm still not that happy with it. I do like what story bits I have played through so far, so maybe there's a new hope around the corner. I don't recommend this if you're not a Star Wars fan and I barely recommend this to anyone else. Buy at your own risk.
